He was using denim scraps from the trash and spent a minute talking to 
me about the seams in the denim and how to feed them through (sometimes 
the seams are too much for it, go VERY slowly and maybe pull from behind 
a tiny bit).  I told him about the eyelet and he laughed.  The timing 
gets knocked off whenever the machine goes through something crazy like 
that.  if it wasn't that eyelet, it was lots of aggressive sewing of 
bulky seams or something.  Basically the timing was totally screwed up. 
  That just means that all the little moving bits aren't meeting each 
other at the right points in the cycle - so they can't engage and create 
the stitch.  Some of this may have been caused by attempts to fix it - 
it is really tempting to fiddle with knobs and stuff when the machine's 
not working right.
